Five discernable Ruby crystals rest in the syenite host of this hand specimen. The largest of these crystals has visible dimensions of 0.7 x 0.5 x 0.2" (1.8 x 1.3 x 0.5 cm), and only one shows more than very light damage. All have reasonably good hexagonal tabular or prismatic form, with moderately well-defined edges and slightly uneven but clean faces that possess a greasy luster. Their deep red color has a strong violet tinge and is standard for Rubies from this locality. They are cloudy and only dimly translucent.
